Gardening clobber...

Posted: 04/01/2015 at 23:30

I still wear a nylon padded parka type jacket with a fur trimmed hood that I bought for my son for school when he was 14, he will be 47 in Feb. And when that jacket has been washed it looks like new. After David left school my mum had it for dog walking, then it was passed back to me about 20 years ago, its never not took pride of place on the coat hooks.

I thought gardening was supposed to make people happier, according to uni surveys they are using it for therapy, there are some pretty miserable watsits on here today.

Easy to work out, if the plant has leaves on stems and with flower buds coming from leaf joints then do not prune. If the flower buds are coming from the very base of the plant then prune off the leaves.

Which coast is it Barney, may be you will grow different plants if you are in Cornwall on the Atlantic coast as you would on the North sea coast.

My daughter grows these in Cornwall but as much as I like them, they look like a succulent and probably wouldnt like damp conditions, they would look nice in Hosta's newly planned jungle garden.

WO, You may not find anyone as soft hearted than me, I will do anything for anybody.

MA has written some disgusting posts on here that have had to be removed, I had the hardest job to stop my OH taking one of them to the police, I just had it removed in time.

With his constant boasting about all his letters after his name, his references to certain ladies on here, I  find him offensive and I am not the only one, I am just the only one he picks on.

He is far from lonely, he has family and he has said on here that neighbours are forever calling to ask his advice. He is no older than a lot of people on this forum, he just comes back with the 'Pity me ' post when anyone has stood up to him.

He is the one that does the bullying, a few people have had to change their names here to get him to leave them alone.

I never knew the buds were called noses. I have only just cut the old leaves off mine, some had black spots on but the new growth is perfect, no flowers out yet, but soon. I have some seedlings in a tray ready for next year.
